We arrived early and were pleasantly surprised that rather than leaving our luggage in the lobby until our room was ready, we could fully check in to our room. The air in our room though was stiffing, and, had a musty odor. We called room service and they brought up Febreeze, but, that seemed to make it worse. Opened the patio door and set the decorative bed pillows outside to air. Odor left slowly but, after purchasing Lysol and going through the floors (carpets), a/c unit, door handles, remote, etc.. LOL, it finally went away. All other service when requested was quick with the exception that we asked for Champagne to be delivered prior to our trip, and it wasn't in the room. They didn't deliver that until the last day of check out. Other draw back was the stairs!!! No elevator. So, you are going to have to haul your luggage and yourself up to your room if you aren't able to book the bottom floor. The stairs were next to our room and you could hear folks stomping up and down so that was a bit of a drawback. We didn't have a view but a patio. Ours was a last minute booking, and, so we knew about that before coming. No coffee pot or microwave. So, hot water, tea, and coffee were only available in the lobby during lobby hours.
